Happy things

yet another gorgeous sunny day.
It was lovely to sit outside and do some crochet.
The granny scarf is coming along beautifully.

it feels so soft and fluffy

Another hobby (read addiction) of mine...collect fabrics.
I found these terrific red and white - westfalenstoffe- fabrics.


i especially love this one below..so sweet!


I think they make great curtains for the cupboard i like to re-do.
Change the blue ones for red.
or a red white check...hmm, not sure yet.


I visited two thriftshops today and boy was i lucky
..ooh yes i was!


These pretty scenes with a little church, a small river and swans.
A farm and a horse


And a water scene with a sailboat


and people in a rowing boat.


Amazing isn't..the things you can find at the thrift shop!
I see some beatiful bags coming!

I bought this yarn in a yarn store
Lana grossa 70% mohair and 30% silk
It's gorgeous, super soft and light


perfect for a super soft granny scarf.

Today's catch,

Today we driven past a few thriftshops,
and this is what we found,
Beautiful roses,
'Lady at the window'

from the dutch painter Vermeer
And this so pretty embroidered wall hanger.

I think it's German folk embroidery.

Great catch don't you think?
